of them were. i think this was generally true throughout most of my career. c-span: you write about dan rather's $36-million, 10-year contract? >> guest: yes. c-span: did all that get under you skin? >> guest: not really because by the time that rather was commanding that kind of salary, we had passed the million dollar mark and the star system was so much a part of the institution now that it was just more fun and games. people like myself -- we were line correspondents and we were the people you dropped in anywhere in the world and said, "get a story." that's what we did for a living we didn't read for a living. we didn't vent the news or act the news for a living or talk to other people on the set and interact. we went out and got stories. we wrote stories and we reported them, so we did something different for a living, i feel. c-span: let me ask you a question. i'll ask you and see if you have the answer. today, if there was a vietnam war and you were a correspondent over there or there was any correspondent over there, what would the salary be? >> guest: for a line correspondent?

here to the chamber of commerce and dan gallagher on the financial regulatory system. president obama unveils his proposal for reducing gun valent earlier this afternoon, featuring an assault weapons ban, a ban on high capacity magazines and a method to close loopholes in the background check system. here are some of his remarks at first, it's time for congress to require a universal background check for anyone trying to buy a gun. [applause] the law already requires background checks to be wrong coming over the last 14 years, that has kept 1.5 million of them on the wrong people from getting their hands on a gun. but it's hard to enforce that law when as many as 40% of all gun purchases are conducted without a background check. it is not safe, it is not smart. it is not fair to responsible gun buyers or sellers. if you like to buy a gun, whether it is from a licensed dealer or private seller, you should be set at least have to show your not a felon or somebody legally prohibited from buying one. this is common sense. an overwhelming majority of americans agree with us on the need for

in its own right the other dan pointed out to me, you know this better than i do, when gabby was shot, but for the fact when the assailant had to put in a new clip and fumbled and a woman reached out and jumped grabbed him, prevented him from putting a new clip in. a new congressman who is injured and shot properly three would not have been around to tell the story. so, some of those children were read out with 11 bulletholes. high-capacity magazines in our view are not worth the risk.

. then they talk about the democrats because harry reid talked about the assault by big dan and getting it to the united states senate controlled by the democratic party. it ain't going to happen. so if you look at the red state senators up for reelection alabaster down south, that's what i'm talking about in terms of overreach. if this is something we such close the loophole, catch 40% escaping and i'm guns if they mentally disturbed had reasonable restrictions. the problem in the heller case is you couldn't have a can bus registered, but they would much reregister. that is in effect that you can't do it and that tesco to fire. so if it's common sense, quite frankly i don't know why somebody needs 10 bullets. it doesn't seem like some magic number to me. to the gunowners, that sounds like something somebody made up. the president's executive orders can be accepted by the republican party. if they did close down 90 people buying guns. you think this through. >> small items on ticket items. >> yes. in the brady bill of 93, about effectively. for background check. the assault weapons ban
